Rio Penguin

Isn't this image just SO cute!!?   I adore penguins and wish I could cuddle up with one....although, I don't think in actual real life they would be all that cuddly, and they would probably smell funky, but it's a fun thought!!

 The image is from Simply B Stamps called Rio Penguin.

I cut out a  circle image from black cardstock and used the negative piece for a frame with my stitched circle dies from My Favorite Things, embossed with blue powder using a polka dot foam stamp that I have had FOREVER, added heart die cuts from Lawn Fawn, some twine and black enamel dots from Your Next Stamp.  I colored with copics and added a little highlight with my white marker, the snowflake is Lawn Fawn as well.

I love the blue against the black with a pop of red.

If you could cuddle with any animal (no dogs/cats)  at all (with no fear of it eating you, pooping on your, biting you or poisoning you) what would it be???  Curious minds want to know! ;)

                                Mine would be a choice between a baby penguin and an otter!
